Steel is one of the most used metals for construction and other purposes. Be it cars, washing machines, locomotives, refrigerators, ships, or surgical instruments -- all are made using Steel. The two main components that make Steel are iron and carbon. With almost 2% carbon and 1% manganese, the metal also consists of few phosphorus traces, oxygen, silicon, and sulfur.
The higher reliability and strength make steel the preferable casting metal in industries like construction, railroad, transportation, drilling, and mining industries.
Different Varieties of Steel Castings
Below are the two major steel castings we manufacture and supply at our foundry.
Carbon Steel Castings
As the name suggests, this type of steel casting is classified based on the carbon content. We supply low, medium, and high carbon steel castings of supreme quality to all the steel equipment manufacturers worldwide. Low carbon steel castings are usually soft than medium and high Steel ones. These castings can be used based on the desired hardness and resistance.
Alloyed Steel Castings
Alloyed steel castings can be segregated as low or high alloy steel castings. The low alloyed castings are similar to carbon castings but exhibit a higher degree of hardness. High alloy steel castings are developed to produce a specific property, such as corrosion resistance, heat resistance, or wear resistance.
Types of Steel
Steel has several varieties when it comes to types of Steel. Depending on the types of chemical, physical, or environmental requirements, there are more than 3500 grades of Steel. Modern Steel is lighter and more substantial when compared to the Steel used in the past.
Exhibits hardness, strength, ductility, toughness, corrosion resistance, etc., based on the alloy metals used in manufacturing.
It can be used in railroad, mining, construction, military, truck, and oil and gas industries.
Challenging to weld and is sensitive to dirt.
hardness, tensile strength, toughness, yield strength, fatigue strength, elongation, corrosion, plasticity, malleability, and creep.
Benefits of Steel Castings
The steel castings' design flexibility gives the designer the freedom to choose the manufactured object's shape and size.
